(If you have a photo editing program and would like to make this, you can grab the 12x4 inch template here. Just place the photo or paper you would like to use above the letter (one space above the letter in the layers panel) and then press alt and left click with the mouse in the layers panel between the additional layer and the letter (mask layer) to clip it into place; opt key for mac. The photo or paper will take on the shape of the text.)
The last couple weeks have been cool here in the midwest (high 60s/low 70s) and very rainy. So, we gave up on pool shots and ventured out to jump in puddles.
I was super stoked for the opportunity to use my new 28-75mm f/2.8 lens for our water theme. I attempted to capture the kids splashing. Only it was dark. And my shutter speed was too high. So, I compensated with Florabella's BW Film and Paint the Moon's Overall Lighter Action. Florabella provides a sliding scale for all of the adjustment layers, so I removed most of the vignette and cranked the light way up.
Hubs held the umbrella over me while I snapped away. Nothing better than candid shots. At first they were hesitant, but it didn't take long before the kids were chasing and splashing each other.

It was all I could do to drag Pokey inside. She dumped her boots multiple times.
And could have cared less that she was soaked through. She was havin a ball!
